Gettin’ paid by the Second

With 11th Graders, we were discussing jobs.

————————
Mr. C: Would you rather be paid by the hour? Or salary? Teachers for instance get paid salary. That means no matter how many hours you work, you still make a set amount.
T: Hold up, y’all dont get paid by the hour?
Mr. C: No, teachers are paid salary.
T: Fuck that, I’d be gettin’ paid by the second.
————————–

I wish we were paid by the second.
